We See You Volunteer

This opportunity takes place until 08 Mar 2024

We See You is a service, delivered from our Glasgow Access Hub, for people who are still using drugs in Glasgow City Centre.

This volunteer role offers a unique opportunity to be part of our award-winning team in a supportive environment.

Specific tasks:

  • Support us to deliver the holistic group work elements of this project such as music, drama, mindfulness and employability skills
  • Assist staff to facilitate the co-designing and co-producing of group work with people who access the We See You service

Successful We See You volunteers will:

  • Be able to approach your volunteering role and tasks with a flexible and non judgemental attitude 
  • Have good communication and people skills 
  • Enjoy meeting and interacting with people from diverse backgrounds
  • Commit to high levels of harm reduction based support – experience of dealing in this practice would be beneficial
